The release of the HP Multi Jet Fusion platform makes production 3D printing a reality, and the new Jet Fusion 5200 is on the forefront of this paradigm shift. For the first time, 3D printing was now a viable option for larger-scale production.
Let’s take a look at how the process works.
The 5200 series features a printer, build unit, and processing station similar to the 4200 model but brings superior part predictability and reliability. For part predictability, the 5200 can be qualified to meet the process capability for a CPK of 1.33 or IT13, allowing for consistent part tolerances.
To increase reliability, this system has redundancies and more robust hardware and software to complete your builds. Some examples are multiple fusing lamps and redundant motors, as well as a higher resolution thermal camera.
The 5200 has a new 1-pass printing mode which gives faster building speed, without compromising on mechanical and dimensional properties.
Another innovative new feature is HP’s 3D natural cooling unit. Once a job is finished job it can be transferred to the natural cooling unit and then stored to cool. This frees up the build unit to be used for the next job immediately, so you can keep printing at full capacity.
The 5200 produces functional parts with finer detail and sharper edges to textures, along with best-in-class isotropy. The solution can achieve dimensional accuracy and repeatability that rivals industrial tooling. There is a low carbon footprint with best-in-class reusability.
HP’s growing portfolio of materials opens the doors to new markets and applications, providing companies a long term peace of mind on their investment. Jobs can be setup and managed with HP’s Command Analytics software or integrated with other industry-leading partners like Autodesk Netfabb.
As you can see, the HP Jet Fusion 5200 can scale production and unleash new growth, providing speed and throughput that rivals conventional manufacturing methods. For more information on the HP JJet Fusion 5200, please click the button below.
